    Background Processes cause delays

      Hi --


      First off, I want to state that I've spent hours looking over info about this topic in both the Adobe Forums and at the Creative Cow forums. So I finally think I have a handle on what's going on...but the situation still hasn't improved. I need some quick answers here or I'm going to toss my computer out the window.


      Here's the problem:

      Whenever I RAM preview, the AE info panel ALWAYS says "Background Process Status Loading Projects..." It does this no matter what. This can often take ten to fifteen seconds. It's a major time-killer. I have tried multiple configurations in the Memory & Multiprocessing prefs and I always get this problem. What gives?


      It should be noted that my project file is large (40MB). I still get this message in smaller project files, but it stays up for less time (often only a few seconds).


      How can I fix this?


      P.S. Another annoyance is that the project always saves whenever I RAM preview. Another time-killer.




      Here's my Computer:

      Mac OS X 10.6.2

      2 x 2.66 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon

      16 GB 1066 MHz DDR3


      Here's my AE Memory & Multiprocessing prefs:
